2018 England Talent Day

Somerset FA are delivering a fantastic opportunity for keen young football players who have a disability; a chance to try out for the National Team!

The England Talent Day is the first step of the England Talent Pathway for players with a disability. It will allow coaching staff and an FA Talent Selection Officer to identify and signpost players to the appropriate football environment, as well as identifying players with the potential to progress in the England Talent Pathway and attend a further 6 week programme.
 
The England Talent Day is open to male players with the following impairments: Deaf / Hearing Impairment, Visual Impairment, Learning Disability, Cerebral Palsy, Amputee, Blind. The England Talent Day is also open to female players with a hearing impairment.
